Here are a few colors you should wear, to look your best, outshining all the others.
This is most neutral and classic color to wear, and one can never go wrong with it. Be it a choli-lehnga, a saree, or an anarkali suit, beige can be paired up with accent shades of pink, red, orange, and be carried off majestically. It looks the best when monotones of antique gold surfaced fabric is used for the flares or falls. So when taking the first step towards your new life, start it with this royal tone! Pair nude heels and a statement necklace and you are good to go.
Midnight blue is one of the most contemporary, chic and yet classy color that Indian fashion designers have illustrated. Either it’s georgette, crepe, or silk, this color goes very regally with this occasion. Adding hints of silver, gold and red makes this look even more splendid. We’ll give you some engagement outfit ideas – wearing a maangtika that goes with the ensemble makes you look like the most perfect bride ever.
This is the most vibrant, and chirpy color that makes you look more joyous than you already are, and makes everyone around you cheerful. Yellow inevitably improves the mood around you by radiating an aura of happiness. Having accents of red and pink gives you an essence of an entire traditional Indian attire with contemporary hints.
Either wear it as a blouse and dupatta, with an accented lehenga or wear yellow with a darker hued blouse. Either way, pair it up with a statement jewellry piece and you are the centre of the party!
Pink, being the most feminine color of all the times, refuses to go wrong, whatever the occasion. For an important day such as this, choose one of the lighter shades of pink, beautifully crafted with silver or golden zardozi work, and you would look nothing less than a princess! Soft shades makes you look and feel light, and could go well without any accent hues. For someone with really pale skin, go for highlights of beige for the pink to stand out. One question that will definitely pop up in your mind, while choosing your engagement outfit colour – “what color dress should I wear with my skin tone”. Well, let us tell you, pink and its hues suits every skin color.

Combining hair ornaments adds on to this color and definitely makes you stand out of all.
